I have dullness in my rightside. Usually my leg and arm, and sometimes my face. It sort of comes and goes, but it's always there and sometimes it's really bad. My doctors have checked for MS, but all the tests come back ok. Nothing shows up on the MRI, blood tests, or spinal tap.

This has been going on for almost 2 years now. I'm worried, and sick of being sick. Do symptoms of MS develop before physical signs appear? Why only my right?

Are there other causes of these symptoms? I need clues.

  • I have the same problem on my left side. Started a year ago with just my left arm. Had cervical MRI done, showed a bone spur. A year later my arm pain became worse, with my left hand turning purple. My left leg started feeling very heavy, with tingling and electrical like pains in my foot. The left side of my face tingles, with electric shock like pains in my tongue and lower lip. Had brain and lumbar MRI's, showed nothing. Neurologist sid he has ruled out MS, and is "puzzled". Hate feeling this way and frutrated that no one can give me an answer!Good Luck!
